Can Nature Teach You Success?

16 replies
As a nature lover, I have a profound respect for nature.

Often we hear nature analogies regarding success; for
example:

Like a flower, which attracts pollinators to it, one should
first develop oneself and therefore attract success rather
than chase it.

Have You Learned Any Lessons From Nature?

    A Redwood tree is one of the biggest trees in the world. Naturally if it starts to lean one direction, the tree will grow more limbs on the other side to remain balanced.

    Key Point : Always stay balanced with what you do in your business. Or topple over.

    And great example. Success is attracted by the person you become.

    I´ve learned to never give up, and always stand up again, once you have fallen.

    I often quote nature when I am coaching for business. In the garden we prepare the soil because we know the preparation is the hard work and we will gain the benefits. then we sow the seeds or plant the bulbs. Nature takes its course but we lend a hand, we water when its too dry and give food if needed. sometimes we have to trim down or put support in. The seasons come and go, the snow can cover the soil and the seeds are working hard underground. The the warmth and the sun come and the little green shoots appear. sometimes they have to force themselves through the frozen ground, but they dont give up, they just keep on going - because its nature.

    We can learn so much from this. Dont give up when the going gets tough, just go watch some daffodils survive through their growth in an English garden. That will inspire you to just keep pushing on.

    The end result can be whatever you want it to be, a beautiful garden with wonderful sights and smells - it can also be a geat successful business giving you financial freedom and satisfaction.

      Great post Linda!

      As for myself, I absolutely love nature. I think the pure beauty of it can teach us a lot just by going out of our way to appreciate it (it's right in front of us but most miss out on the beauty unless they look). So I guess one thing it has taught me is to stop and look at what is right in front and all around me.

      Peace,

    I LOVE the seasons and how they work : )

    I think that's HUGE for us to grow as individuals...it works perfectly with awareness and evolution.

    Spring time's fresh and new....summer's the work and labor & fall is our reward...winter is the dead end...the passing of a time or "level of awareness"

    I lil trick I realized is that we don't need to work in seasons but years...believe it or not that's how trees work : 0...doesn't look like it from the surface but they operate in years...I swear!! I've obviously got no proof for this..only observation : p

  • I think nature teach us very much!

    Last year I learned very valuable lesson just from watching in to the forest. In example one tree alone doesn't grow so well and tall than two tree's together and even more tree's even longer etc.

    The point is that together we are strong. Alone in this world there is so much strugle in everything you do

    Wasn't it Robert The Bruce who was inspired by watching a spider struggle to make web. The spider just kept going until it finally succeeded. This inspired him to lead his Scottish army to victory, after 6 defeats, against the English.

    Adaptation is the key...it's the difference between those who make it through the 'rough times' and those who don't.
    Nature is all about adaptation and cooperation. Humans are supposed to be, but we get stuck in our ways often.

    Nature taught me that we are all different like, plants are. You treat flowers differentlty according to their special needs. A rose is not a cactus, isn't?

    What a wonderful topic.

    What I learned from nature? Many things, but above all persistence in what I do.
    Nature doesn't care about success or failure. It only persists.

    Patience is what I learned also. And to let go.

    Great topic. For me, the survival of the fittest is the underlying teaching offered by nature (or Darwin). You can never succeed if you fail to improve yourself and build assets that take you to success. I don't like to think that success is competition; but, for example, in the world of online marketing, we have to offer something better than what spammers, cheaters and exploiters do if we want to triumph.
